99-02 R6 Hindle Exhaust
I'm a newbie here but just thought id share my two cents on the new exhaust I installed on my bike today.
So ill start from the beginning from purchase to install, lets start with the brand for all of you who don't know hindle is a Canadian exhaust manufacturer located in Ontario and have been making motorcycle exhausts since 1982 previously to that Lang Hindle was a very successful motorcycle racer who custom made his own exhausts.
So I called hindle last week to get information about getting a new exhaust system, I didn't have many hopes since budget is real tight with my baby girl and baby boy who is on the way. At first I spoke with Melanie she was really kind and helped me out as best she could but was not to good with technical questions specially about fitting, which brings me to Lee the second person who I spoke to and he was able to get me all the information I needed. so basically I ended up getting a midpipe for 99$ Cdn and an 18inch aluminum muffler for 129$ Cdn on blowout sale....pretty sick deal(well I find) Shipping was fast they got it here in two days, and I cannot stress this guys there customer support is amazing I called these guys non stop for information and they had a solution and patience everytime!!!
So I got the system today, packaging was phenominal seriously everything was perfectly wrapped and the parts didn't rattle in the box. installation is pretty straight forward and everything went in place nicely....now in the fit and finish is where I got into tiny little issues, don't get me wrong everything fit and works well but there is a little gap on one side of the muffler were the midpipe connects. not a problem though I put a bit of high temp silicon and that was that keeping in mind though this is the lowest quality that hindle doess offer it cost me 220$ Cdn after all. So all in all if you want a good sounding pipe that wont break the bank man hindle has you covered and there a small company so service is great and you always wind up talking to the same person.
